More about The Tynings
Although our cottage is some 200 years old, the garden has mainly been developed over the last 30 years. The half-acre garden is generously planted with a large selection of rare trees and shrubs, many now maturing in size. For the interest of tree connoisseurs, these include: Chiltalpa tashkentensis; Metasequoia glyptostroboides; Picea spinulosa; Ginko biloba; Picea likiangensis and younger examples of Pinus strobus ; Acer griseum; Cercidiphyllum ‘Morioka Weeping’; Davidia involucrata 'Sonoma'; Xanthocyparis nootkatensis 'Jubilee'; Prunus serrula; and Betula austrosinensis.
Our eclectic selection of unusual shrubs includes Berberis montana, valdiviana and ‘Red Tears’; Viburnum plicatum ‘Rosace’; Heptacodium miconoides; and a Rosa ‘Paul’s Himalayan Musk’. Other features include a large collection of lilies (many from The Lily Garden in Washington State), ferns and climbers. However it is not just a collection of plants but a cottage garden ‘developed’ by a keen plantsman and his wife! Colour continues into late summer and many garden clubs come as late as September to see the autumn colour.
Visitors are always welcome – be it by the coach load, a club visit or as individuals. We are happy to provide refreshments. A small nursery keeps the plantaholics happy! The plant list (naming, in order, plants in each border/island bed) comprises about 1000 plant species. An additional attraction is the Grade 2 listed Norman church next door. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
